Kingfishers had a memorable trip to Slimbridge Wetland Centre this week. It was not only wet, but hailing and even snowing at times too! However, this didn't stop us from enjoying feeding the birds, pond-dipping and watching the otters & harvest mice at play, as well as having fun ourselves exploring Wellybootland!
Kingfishers enjoyed their first Forest School session in the spring sunshine last week! We explored our Forest School site, looking for things that are alive, once alive and never lived. The children found a fantastic array of mini-beasts and thoroughly enjoyed exploring our British Wildlife topic outside!
Kingfishers were excited to start their new topic about 'British Wildlife' this week and have already been bringing in lots of items from home related to this, including some fascinating wildlife books, news about a sparrowhawk sighting in Grace's garden, a ladybird from Penny's garden, a catfish egg case discovered on the beach by Fenton and several soft toy birds & animals for our role-play wildlife spotters' hut!
Kingfishers really enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on Thursday. They had all made a big effort to dress up as favourite book characters and had a lot of fun working out who everybody was - George was voted the best homemade outfit, as Willy Wonka from Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Thank you to all those Kingfishers who took part in 'Ready, Steady, Read' too - hope you enjoyed spending your reward vouchers at the Usborne Book Fair. Don't forget to use your free World Book Day voucher before 27th March too - every child has been given one of these and you can exchange them at bookshops for a free World Book Day book - or use them to get £1 off any other book you choose!
